These notices, summons and subpoenas, many times sudden, require to be transmitted through a secure communication method in which the documents cannot be intercepted in any way, and fast given that time is a key factor in the sector. This is not only for confidentiality or security reasons but also because communications may be subject to strict data privacy regulations, the breach of which can result in severe penalties and the dilapidation of a law firm's reputation.
One method of communication that meets these transmission conditions is the traditional fax, which this industry has relied on for decades.
